11:31pm
delightful? with those clear skies and no clouds and we dry air we're down to 39 degrees here in frederick, gaithersburg about 43, manassas 43 and the district still 52, but that's one of the exceptions because almost everybody else is definitely cooler. so it will be a chilly start in the morning and these are the overnight lows we're expecting to hit including some mid-30s even tonight and colder tomorrow night as yet a second frontal boundary looks like it will come through and keep us chilly as well. that's tonight. tomorrow night probably colder. we've got clear skies all over the area tonight. later there could be some high thin clouds that come in. frontal boundary to our north will swing through. once again we think this will come through dry, but there might be a little deck of clouds in the middle of the afternoon and the breeze will pick up a bit tomorrow afternoon, but it will settle down again tomorrow night. so tonight 47 degrees and the clouds that we get will come closer to dawn with some suburban areas dropping to the
11:32pm
30s. tomorrow 66 degrees. the front comes through, picks up the wind in the afternoon out of the north, northwest 10 to 15 just for a few hours during the afternoon. i think it gets lighter going into the evening. so there's no rain in sight on this accuweather seven-day forecast, cool start tomorrow morning at 8:00. by noon 61 and by 5:00 65 degrees. as mentioned, your accuweather seven-day forecast, not only do we have a beautiful stretch of weather coming, but we begin to warm it up a little bit, sunday 71 degrees. on monday 74 and we do have a few showers expected possibly monday, but for the short term we have no rain in sight. that means a dry weekend. that will be pretty nice. >> take a picture of that with your phone. >> it will be real blurry. the redskins host the vikings sunday at fedex field, so this week lindsay murphy put two redskins to the challenge testing their none of minnesota in the latest edition of 4 down showdown. >> this is the 4 down showdown

11:38pm
11:39pm
a lot ahead tonight, brian bolter now with your news edge. >> the vice president goes head to head with the man who wants to force him out of office and
11:40pm
both candidates came ready for a fight, the debate turned fiesty at times, candidates interrupting each other laughing, eye rolling and under it all they tried to sell the american people on their positions on everything from afghanistan to abortion. fox 5's tom fitzgerald joins us now. this seemed to be a sharp contrast to president obama's performance in the first debate. >> it sure was, brian. everything that president obama was not last week was on display in joe biden's attacks tonight. biden interjected. he interrupted paul ryan several times appearing to knock the congressman off his message. you'll see this in this exchange we're about to show you. they're talking about republican proposals to cut spending while refusing to raise new revenue. the vice president saying that numbers do not add up and then jumping in as paul ryan tried to respond. >> it's not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> it has never been done.
11:41pm
>> it's been done a couple of times. >> it has never been done before. >> ronald reagan and jack kennedy -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> the vice president almost got dismissive when he tried to question the administration's business in afghanistan. >> at times joe biden used answers like marlakey over answers paul ryan gave. the romney/ryan ticket has been saying the united states has been pulling too many troops out of afghanistan leave doing small of force to defend itself in the eastern part of that country. now again here biden staying on the attack questioning ryan's understanding of the obama administration's policy to train afghan troops to take over the fight against the taliban. >> it's the most dangerous place in the world. >> that's why we don't want to send fewer --
11:42pm
>> that's why we should send americans in to do the job. you'd rather americans >> no. we are already sending americans to do the job but fewer of them. >> that's right. we're sending in more afghans to do the job, afghans to do the job. >> you know, this post debate spin has already gone into high gear tonight. republicans sending out dozens of e-mails to reporters tonight questioning the vice president's facts of what they say are distortions of. in turn democrats are also spinning this saying that paul ryan could simply not explain in their words the policies on which he and mitt romney are campaigning on in order to get elected. >> tom fitzgerald tonight. so who did the better job connecting with americans tonight? depends who you ask. we're getting reaction from both sides this evening. republican strategist jack burkeman and democratic strategist brendan daley. brendan, i'll start with you, we get instant reactions oftentimes in the world of
11:43pm
social media and while immediately after the presidential debate it appeared mitt romney was the winner. looks like biden took this one. why do you think he did so well? >> i think he was aggressive. that's what democratic voters wanted to see from the president last week, but tonight the vice president was very aggressive and went after paul ryan particularly when ryan made statements he couldn't back up whether on the budget, medicare, afghanistan. the vice president was very aggressive in refuting that and i think that's what voters wanted to see. >> jack, i want to ask you were the optics something paul ryan could not overcome? i saw a lot of references to looked like a father and a son, the elder and the person learning from the elder. it just seemed like the optics were real tough for ryan. >> i may be in the minority. i think paul ryan did quite well. my overall response is joe biden who has never been known as the brightest turnip in the
11:44pm
field, many democrats say that, i think he had a stronger substantive performance, but i think he marred it enormously with all of this talking over ryan and interjecting and this very condescending laugh he did a dozen times or more. the american people aren't fools. i think they'll look at this and see a man who is very rude. the other thing is i think ryan made his points very well. one of the things that's haunting this campaign and i think it's finally catching up with obama and biden as you look at the numbers is fundamentally they don't have anything to run on. >> that's not true. >> the only pitch is it could be worse if we didn't waste the 3 trillion. my point is the only thing they can do is go negative. you saw that tonight with biden. he has no real platform of his own. the only thing he can do is attack ryan. >> that's just not true, jack. >> that's rather strange because he's the incumbent. >> that's not true. paul ryan said that several times tonight, but look, things are better than four years ago. we were falling off a cliff economically.
11:45pm
yes, things aren't going as well as we wanted, but things have gotten better. unemployment is under 8%. now the republicans won't believe that. oh, those numbers are cooked they say. they can't tell the truth. >> last question for both of you, 15th 2nd each. does it really matter -- 15 seconds each. does it really matter? there was a lot of interest in the presidential debate, not a lot this time around and it seems to be dropping? >> i think there were a lot of disspiritted democrats after last week and now near on board feeling much better. >> from a television point of view, you were competing with major sport tonight which hurt the visibility overall of the debates, but i think this will be a rare election cycle where the debates are very decisive. the first one a clear victory for the republicans, this one a draw. i think it's maybe pay slight win for paul ryan and we'll see on the other -- a slight win for paul ryan and we'll see on the other two. the debate season far from over, two more presidential debates remaining, the next one
11:46pm
tuesday at hofstra university in new york and the final one october 22nd at lynn university in florida. the next two debates will be shown live on fox 5. there's some natitude in the air tonight. the nationals have kept their season alive at least one more day thanks to some 9th inning magic. sport director scott smith joins us now. >> with one giant swing the momentum has now swung in favor of the home team in in series back against the wall in the series and the game, jayson werth at the plate in the bottom of the 9th tied 1-1 climbing out of an 0-2 count, 13th pitch of the at bat, turn off the lights, let's go home. a walkoff home run, werth delivers when it mattered most. the nats even the series and storm the field, the sellout crowd going nuts and the hero leaping into the crowd waiting for him at home plate. 2-1 the final. they live to play another day, werth sharing the moment with
11:47pm
the family after this one. >> we faced them a lot over september and the series. i think he threw a hook 2-2 to get the 3-2. i figure from now i wasn't getting the hitter. finally got one to hit. >> that's jason. he grinds it out whether he's healthy or hurt. he's a leader and has taught us a lot. >> game five tomorrow night at nationals park, winner take all, 8:37 late start. gio gonzalez squares off against adam wainwright. a muslim civil liberties and advocacy group fires back at a controversial advertisement. the council on islamic american relations says they're planning on putting ads up in metro stations in response to the anti-jihad ads last week. this week a judge ruled metro had to permit the ads. some muslim americans see them as an attack on islam. care will announce their advertising campaign tomorrow.
